In brief: Depends

If you are asking how long is process to get a breast reduction covered by insurance than you need to start by first contacting ins to see if this is a covered procedure.
You need to have documented reasons for the reduction. This documentation helps to come from you primary care doc. It is also helpful to get as close to your ideal weight through diet and exercise before having surgery.

Best way to obtain insurance coverage for breast reduction surgery involves some “hoops” to jump through.
First, you will need to check to see if the procedure is “covered” through your insurance plan. The more documentation you have (for example, from your primary care doctor, physical therapist, chiropractor etc.) the better when it comes to obtaining insurance “authorization” for the procedure.

In brief: Around 2.5 hrs

A lot of how long a breast reduction takes depend upon how big the breasts are.
The average is about 2.5 hours.
